    So what did the parent's and tax payers get out of this deal? Same teachers. same schools. same results, higher wages. They're just paying more for the same old shit. There's not going to be a rush of better teachers going there. It's the same ones only being paid more.

    Let em sling hash and beg for tips....That's far better than them teaching our kids to be communists and queers. I doubt many of them will last at it....a good waitress has to smile and remember things without writing them down...most leftists are too sour to smile and have an attention-span of about 10-15 seconds.

    You would likely go where you get a decent level of pay though wouldn't you?

    WV does not invest enough in education, and it's educational infrastructure is in poor shape.

    I like how this thread is "Teacher's Win!!"

    Who else won here? Not the student's, not the tax payers, Not the parents, Not the education system, certainly not the state.

    So the teachers won a raise. Everyone else kinda got fucked.

    Well, clearly, had your teachers not been waitresses at the weekend, you might have got an education too, instead of coming up with all this paranoia.

    With better wages - maybe the better teachers will stay. You aren't going to get good quality with bottom of the barrel wages.

    So the teachers union in the past hasn't done much of anything to improve that, I'm going to bet it won't improve it over the next few years either.

    Teacher's unions have nothing to do with that.

    You're not going to replace these union teachers for decades. They just got a raise. They are there until they decide to retire because the union won't let them get replaced. You haven't improved anything.
